5:45 am
because of the carbon emissions involved. she is asking for help, that is leonardo dicaprio with her there in that photo. eileen burbidge is back, let's get stuck in. can't avoid the election. the guardian has on its front page, and interview it did with jeremy corbyn, front page, and interview it did withjeremy corbyn, the leader of the opposition party, the labour party, and he says a baby on brexit, warning cabinet dissenters. we need to be focused i guess is the message. he is trying to get eve ryo ne message. he is trying to get everyone in line, and the guardian is ascribing him as uncharacteristically assertive, but his point is, listen, the brexit issue has been established, talked about, we spent enough energy on it, let's move on, let's think about how
5:46 am
this general election can be used to talk about more important things which to hedge mind arc social justice, climate change, and the party had already said that the brexit strategy was if they were to come into power, they would renegotiate with the eu within the first three months of them taking control, and then put that to a referendum to the british people. he is saying that our plan is laid out, let's not talk about it, let's use oui’ let's not talk about it, let's use our energy to talk about what people are looking for. as leader of the labor party, that would be a good strategy, wouldn't you think?m seems so. strategy, wouldn't you think?m seems so. settling to keep everyone in the same page. none of this confusion? that has been the challenge for his party. notjust his party... other members of the labour party have even said that their party is remaining, and he is crushed that, we are looking to support the result of the first referendum in 2015, we will renegotiate what we think would be a
5:47 am
better deal and we will pointed to the british people stop in the meantime, let's talk about the other great things that we can do as the party of choice, that would be his election campaign focused, but you are right. it is the right thing to do for him to get his cabinet, his shadow cabinet in line. let's move the telegraph, which looks at the other party, the other big figure in the whole to this general election, nigel farage, head of the brexit party. he is not running for a seat himself in parliament, which is quite interesting, what he is saying is my strategy is to support the 600 that are, who will be campaigning across the country. he will support them as opposed to fighting for himself to get a seat. the telegraph says that he could bring ruin the uk's hopes of brexit and let's not forget that the telegraph is very closely aligned to boris johnson, forget that the telegraph is very closely aligned to borisjohnson, to the prime minister who used to be a columnist. he still doesn't guess,
5:48 am
occasion, doesn't he? when they say that that nigel farage could ruin his chances, they are quoting see baker who is of the conservative party who was previously quite aligned with nigel farage and the brexit party in terms of what they wa nted brexit party in terms of what they wanted to achieve. he is now coming out saying listen, this is the best deal, and nigel farage is risking putting brexit, getting across the line at all, if he is campaigning — his campaigning leads to a hung parliament. sceptics could just be saying that he is trying to make a lot of noise and a lot of distraction because he is not standing. of all the other times that he has stood, he has never won, so that he has stood, he has never won, so that is one reason why he might be doing now, but he is causing a lot of diversions. his argument is actually, other borisjohnson negotiated with brussels is not brexit, is not the brexit that the people voted for in the referendum in and therefore if you really want to brexit you voted for, you can't vote for the conservative party, because if their deal doesn't
5:49 am
deliver that, but the concern i guess on the part of the conservatives and maybe for those in the brexit party is this could split the brexit party is this could split the vote, therefore nobody would get that majority then to see through brexit. exactly, and i dare say that nigel farage is somebody who is never happy with anything, so his point is to try and cause friction against other parties and to try to bea against other parties and to try to be a disturbing force. that would be one point of view. ijust be a disturbing force. that would be one point of view. i just want to highlight, and i am hoping this will move on quickly enough, and i trust that gary will taken at the right moment, but we have a really simple guide to this general election on bbc online which is great, i have treated it. it will not load up for some reason, so we will not go to that by just a some reason, so we will not go to that byjust a safe bbc online has a brilliant, guide explaining who other players, how this will roll. i will retweet it. the wall street journal, we have only talk about this, but their analysis of steve easterbrook having to go. it wasn't,
5:50 am
it is one of those shock announcement that you don't expect? mcdonald's is a big company, a big figure. massive corporation and he has been the chief executive for overfour and a has been the chief executive for over four and a half years, has been the chief executive for overfour and a half years, his wages are around 15 which in itself is controversial, but it has been tied to the stock price which he has doubled in the time that he has been chief executive. unexpected but really reassuring to see that the company did put into effect a code of conduct following the me too movements, and whether or not were inclusive enough and comfortable enough a female and other types of employees, and the fact that there has been this consensual relationship, is what being described, and the question is whether or not somebody else who works at that corporation could really be in a position to say no if she didn't want to be, if you are being proposition, or starting to entertain a relationship with the chief executive, he has violated the company's
5:51 am
chief executive, he has violated the compa ny‘s code of chief executive, he has violated the company's code of conduct, so he is resigning or being asked to resign. he has said that it was a mistake, thatis he has said that it was a mistake, that is the one line we have heard, and we haven't heard from her, and we don't know who she is. it is described as a consensual relationship, and it will be interesting to see what happens at. we have chris kandinsky taking over, who is the head of mcdonald's in the us, whoi who is the head of mcdonald's in the us, who i have been hearing was being mental ward by steve easterbrook, which completely makes sense. he has had lovely things to say, completely on board with the translation plans and initiatives that steve had already put in place, looking at expanding the menus, looking at expanding the menus, looking at expanding the menus, looking at healthier options, so his point is that it shouldn't be too much disruptive that there is change in leadership. the i we have picked but we have several front preachers today, talking about issues within the health service. we have the i sang heart failure hospital admissions rising by a third, putting immense pressure on the nhs,
5:52 am
that of the i focusing on heart failure. that had the daily mail looking at hospitals deluged by diabetics every day, is a diabetes, and then we have a son, which is a slightly different story, midline crisis looking at the coke academic among the over 50s, but hospital cases travelling in five years of. or three front pages looking at pressure on the health service, the nhs, get me were hearing earlier that the leaders in the leaders and energy us are so that the leaders in the leaders and energy us are so worried that we have become a politicalfootball. that is a great way to look at it. the even nhs providers are saying it is very dangerous, please don't use the nhs as a political football to your point. it is a massive asset this country, it is a pride of england and around the uk with the other nhs services, and the reason that all of these pieces are coming out is because at least the two main parties, the conservatives and labor party have body talk about promises and commitments and spending, and private contracts, in the case of
5:53 am
the labour party, and they are using that and the feeling people have about the health service as part of their election campaign. being an american but living in the uk for a very long time, you have got five children? i bet you visit any more than you would like to, maybe with some of those, i mean i do, i have three boys a. i have been a far too often. what is your perspective of the nhs in the uk compared to what you get in the united states?m the nhs in the uk compared to what you get in the united states? it is no comparison, it is amazing, it is a crown jewel. with no comparison, it is amazing, it is a crownjewel. with all those children, i couldn't survive without the nhs, it is absolutely brilliant. just in the united states, if you are there, you and your partner and five kids, the cost... it would be huge. even then you have to have massive fees, the cost of medicines, the cost of descriptions, hospital stays, in care, it is astronomical. quicklime, greta thurnberg, how is
5:54 am
she going to get to madrid. leonardo dicaprio is with her, this photograph in the times at. somebody was saying she should just videoconference if you can't make it. we have had lots of other tongue in cheek responses about something ina kayak, in cheek responses about something in a kayak, getting on a bike, whatever. she is trying to make a point about her plans had to change? she was going to go to chile, but because of the unrest there, the un has moved conference and meeting from to spain, so she planned a world tour, — from chile dispensed a pc has to try to work out transport links across the continent to the us, and i'm sure she will get there and she will make a powerful speech when she does. thank you for your company this morning, and your ideas for greta, send them in, and i will see you very for greta, send them in, and i will see you very soon. hello. not too many weather changes
5:55 am
on the way this week, with low pressure staying in charge. it was somewhat quieter on sunday, but plenty of evidence out there as to how wet it's been recently. and this week will deliver more rain at times, so that part of the forecast isn't changing. but there's something new — it will be turning colder as we go through the week. now, why is it unsettled? low pressure in charge. one area of low pressure with us as we start the week. now, by mid—week, there will be a brief lull, allowing colder air to move down from the north. but that lull is all too brief, as more weather fronts come in later in the week, and that means more rain coming in later in the week. let's see how monday is shaping up. this is how we're starting off. there could be a few mist and fog patches around parts of northern ireland, northern england, southern scotland, for example. this area of rain is slowly feeding its way northwards. as it clears away from the midlands and into east anglia, probably a lot of fine weather to come during monday. southern england into
5:56 am
wales with showers. some of those could be heavy and thundery. no doubt about the wettest weather, that is into eastern scotland. persistent and heavy rain here. a strong, gusty easterly wind, with gusts up to 50mph along the coast. these are average speeds. elsewhere, certainly not as blustery as it will be in eastern scotland. i think north—west scotland, western isles, northern isles, staying mainly dry. temperatures around 10—13 degrees celsius. out and about on monday evening, there will still be that rain in eastern scotland. so there's a chance of seeing some flooding there as those totals start to mount. but overnight, it's the south—east of scotland keeping hold of the rain here. it will turn a bit drier at least across north—east scotland. there'll be some areas of rain and showers around elsewhere in the uk, the chance of seeing some fog patches this time, especially the further south you are. then on into tuesday, well, north—north—easterly wind taking that colder air south across the uk. west is best for drier, brighter weather. still either some outbreaks of rain or showers, mostly across the eastern sides of the uk. and more of us across the northern
5:57 am
half of the uk topping out in single figures. here's the big picture, then, as we go from tuesday into wednesday. this is the brief lull in the weather. it'll mean frost in places as wednesday begins. some fog patches too, but here comes the next set of weather fronts. after the chilly start, increasing cloud, some outbreaks of rain starting to feed in from the west on wednesday. a bit of uncertainty about the timing. as that bumps into colder air, we could well see a bit of snow falling on the higher ground across parts of northern england and scotland. it's apparently the time of year. that's your weather.
